Everywhere one turned during the first week of May, local girls golf teams provide a reason to feel proud, regardless of affiliation.
For Jamesville-DeWitt, there was Molly Hair shooting a 29 at Butternut Creek during last Thursday’s three-way meet against Skaneateles and Cazenovia. The Red Rams, as a team, scored 137 to beat the two Laker sides as Victoria Roney shot a 32 and Hali Greenhouse managed a 37.
On the same day, Fayetteville-Manlius gained a big victory of its own, going to Timber Banks and beating Baldwinsville for the second time in as many months, this one a 183-194 decision.
Unlike the first match, played in cold, windy conditions, F-M basked in 80-degree temperatures and was steady against the Bees.
Meghan Kingsley shot a 44 to lead the charge, while Natalie Powers and Briana Winslow each posted a 46. Kenzie Kingsley had a 47 and Carly Kidd gained a 49 as Allison Donella got a 50. B’ville saw Erin Ganley lead all individuals with a 42.
Just before this, F-M handled Oswego last Monday, beating the Buccaneers 180-210 at Green Lakes. Kingsley, with a 42, paced the Hornets as Powers posted a 45 and Kayla Pallotta finished with a 46.
When J-D returned to action on Wednesday, it shot 194 to win a three-way match over ESM (254) and Westhill (214) at Camillus Country Club. Roney led all individuals, shooting a 44, while the Spartans’ Christina Harkum had a 57 to lead her side.
To keep itself undefeated, CBA first had to fight past Marcellus – which it did, topping the Mustangs 191-229 last Monday afternoon.
Emilie Oakes shot a 45 for nine holes, two shots ahead of teammate Ellie Baumgartner, while Francis Terlen posted a 49.
East Syracuse-Minoa shot 233 in a three-way match last Monday, beating Chittenango (239) but behind Westhill’s total of 206. Jessica Fralicks led the Spartans, shooting a 57.
